Cornucopia of Corruption Cartoons

(click on images to enlarge)

In countless ways, corrupt con man Donald "Rump" Trump is casting aside any semblance of ethics as he continues to use his coming position to advance his business interests.  From meetings with his Indian business partners, to cajoling the Argentinian President to cut corners on his new project in Buenos Aires, to interfering in the placement of wind turbines near his golf course in Scotland, and so much more, on Rump's first day in office he would be likely in violation of Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution which prohibits Government officials from accepting emoluments or bribes from foreign states. Not that the corrupt Rethuglican Congress (or Rump's cult followers) will care, but those are impeachable offenses.
